The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard Review

Image for The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard

Used-car salesman Don Ready (Piven) is hired by a failing auto dealership to turn their Fourth of July sale into a seriously profitable event.


If the idea of a gag about Smurf spunk amuses you, you may get some pleasure out of this... You might also want to consider re-evaluating your life. Jeremy Piven, meanwhile, should consider whether his mission for leading man status is worth stooping to such morbidly dull material. Here, he does a John C. Reilly and swerves from supporting player to chief yuk-snatcher.

The result isn’t so much Walk Hard as Walk Off. He’s a hotshot car salesman parachuted into a dealership to up sales and, if he can, bed the boss’ daughter. Scatological mayhem ensues, plus ‘ironic’ racism and a bewigged cameo from Will Ferrell (who produces).

A tired, dumb, tedious 'comedy'. Being low-brow is fine, but this is low on laughs, too.
